Last night, Oregon Governor Kate Brown announced new restrictions on public gatherings and school-related competitions, effective immediately and for the next 30 days

Reading carefully the Governor's directive, three key terms of the new C-19 restrictions apply to Oregon Masters Swimming competitions: No gatherings >250 people, maintain "social distance" of 3 feet, and all school competitions canceled. 

1. Most meets, even with minimal staffing, will be at or over 250 people when counting all people at the meet, including facility staff.
2. We cannot maintain a 3-foot social distance.
3. Our competition environment is no different from a school-based competition.  In this environment, we cannot afford to be crosswise with the state and the public bodies who own and operate most of our competition pools.

Failing any one of the three tests is enough, and all meets fail #2 and #3.

We don't plan on re-scheduling this event due to the ongoing threat of this pandemic.
